Getting abducted has always been an interesting part of The Sims, and thanks to the ‘Get to Work‘ expansion, you can now get abducted in The Sims 4 as well. That is why this guide will show you how to get abducted by aliens in The Sims 4.

The game features a hidden meter that determines if your sim will get abducted or not. If you follow this guide, you’ll have an almost 100% chance to meet aliens and even get your male sims pregnant. With that said, let’s dive right in and get started.

The Sims 4: How to Get Abducted

Every night, there is a small chance that one of your sims will get abducted. However, you can take part in a few activities to increase this chance. There are some things that you can do to gain a “buff” for at least 24 hours that will allow you to get abducted by aliens.

Be a Genius

Having the Genius trait allows your sim to have a higher chance of getting abducted.

If you have the Genius trait, you will have a slightly higher chance of getting abducted by aliens in The Sims 4. Plus, this also allows your sim to gain the Focused Moodlet which is extremely useful in learning the Logic skill and succeeding in the Scientist career.

Aliens will be more interested in sims that have this trait compared to sims that do not have the Genius trait. So, if you want to get abducted, make sure that you select it during CAS.


Stargazing is a great way to get abducted.

If you are a fan of The Sims, you’ll know that this is the classic way of getting abducted. Luckily, you can still do it in The Sims 4 as well. After you reach at least level seven in the Logic skill, you can select the “Search for The Truth” option of the telescope.

Keep in mind that this interaction is only available from 8 PM to 6 AM. Doing so will slightly increase the hidden abduction meter and you will be more likely to get contacted by aliens.

Scientist Career

Choosing the Scientist career will allow your sim to have a higher chance of abduction.

Going into the Scientist career path will allow your sims to gain an edge to getting abducted. Once you hit level 4 of the career path, you will unlock the Satellite Dish. It can be found under “Electronics,” under “Misc.”

Interacting with this item will increase your abduction gauge, and you cannot use it again for the next 24 hours.

Plus, once you hit the maximum level (level ten) in the Scientist career, you will unlock the “Out of this World” desktop computer. It can be found under “Electronics” under “Computers.”

Using it will also increase your abduction meter and you will have a great chance of getting abducted by aliens during the night. Keep in mind that you cannot use it for the next 24 hours since it completely fills your meter.

Electroflux Wormhole Generator

Once you hit level six of the Scientist career, you will unlock the invention constructor item. This is an extremely useful device as it allows you to create the Electroflux Wormhole Generator. This contraption increases your chance of getting abducted which is a great thing.

Plus, you can also use it to visit an alien world called Sixam. Here, you can meet aliens and explore the world without being abducted.

Cheat to Get Abducted

You can use cheats to get abducted immediately without any issues.

Finally, if you do not want to wait for the perfect moment or cannot get abducted for some reason, you can always use cheats. To get abducted by using cheats in The Sims 4, you need to:

  • Press Control + Shift + C.
  • Type in “testingcheats true” and hit enter.
  • Type in “interactions.push AlienAbduction_BeAbducted” and hit enter again.

This will allow your currently selected sim to get abducted by aliens. You can do this multiple times if you want your sim to get pregnant with an alien baby. Keep in mind that only male sims can get pregnant if they get abducted by aliens.

Since the chance is quite low, you can continue using the cheat to get abducted until you get the result that you are looking for.


And there you have it; that’s everything you need to know about how to get abducted by aliens in The Sims 4. Since this feature was brought back in the game, you can test out your luck to see if your sim gets abducted or not. Getting abducted can also result in pregnancy (male sims only).

To have a higher chance of getting abducted, you can mix and match the various methods mentioned above. This will almost always result in your sim getting abducted during the night.
